Brandon Knight missed a potential game-tying three-pointer with 7.9 seconds left to play as the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Toronto Raptors
92-89 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Monday night.
The Bucks are now 0-2 against Toronto and have dropped 6-straight against the Raptors overall.
The Bucks were down nine at the half, 53-44 and eventually drew even at 71-71 early in the fourth quarter. They took the lead, 76-75 on a O.J. Mayo three-pointer at the 6:31 mark and 78-77 with 5:39 to play. That’s when Toronto went on a 7-0 run and the Bucks would only be able to get within 1-point the rest of the way.
Knight finished with a team-high 20 points, while Ilyasova, playing in his second game back from a concussion, added 14.
Kyle Lowry had 18 points to lead six Toronto Raptors in double figures. The Raptors grabbed 20 offensive rebounds and scored 21 second chance points.
